The Applied Superconductivity Conference

ASEF Board Message

ASC'22 Conference Chair's Statement

The Applied Superconductivity Conference (ASC) for over 50 years has created the premier international conference on applied superconductivity in the electronics, large scale, and materials fields for the engagement of learning and the exchange of science through the presentation of original papers, posters, seminars, forums and plenary lectures. Our conference draws from over twenty countries with more than half the attendees from outside the United States. We are well represented by leaders from notable national and international laboratories, institutes, and universities, with a strong contingent of young professionals and students. Our conference will continue to partner with the IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity, a peer-reviewed and fully indexed and searchable publication available through IEEE Xplore.

Aloha to ASC 2022 in Hawaii! On behalf of our organizing team, we are excited to invite you to join us at the Hawaii Convention Center for the 2022 ASC Conference, for a face-to-face meeting, to be held October 23 – 28, 2022. This conference will not be offered with a virtual attendance option. Honolulu promises to be a special venue for our conference with a healthy food budget, ongoing planning for robust and exciting technical and ELEVATE programs, an overabundance of restaurants loaded with tasty international food, welcoming hotels and housing opportunities, and sights to explore.

ASC'22 Program Chair's Welcome

Our program committee is working to create an exciting and vibrant program with breaking plenaries, special sessions (including the 11th Transition-Edge Session (TES) Workshop, successfully held as part of the ASC since 2008), engaging talks and posters. Our electronics program provides a unique opportunity for the Quantum Information community to present their latest results in quantum computing/ communication/sensing that involve the use of superconductors in any part of the Quantum System. We invite and welcome your input for plenary speakers and special sessions. Abstract submissions are due March 23, 2022. Read more.

The Honolulu Convention Center in Hawaii is a spectacular event destination, open to the sky with multi-story height space filled with lush plants and trees, terraces and lanais, and graced with courtyards, waterfalls and fishponds to create a unique backdrop for our conference. This luminous structure combines state-of-the art technology with authentic island ambiance to provide and aloha and inspiring conference experience.  See you there in the fall of 2022!

To address the evolving goals of ASEF as an educational foundation, we have launched the ELEVATE program. It is being designed to promote educational opportunities, professional & leadership development, and outreach between our scientific community and society. It is a program that all members of the applied superconductivity community may leverage to their professional advantage.

ELEVATE supports the Foundation’s core mission by providing opportunities for professional and leadership development through four fundamental pillars that are focused on involvement, networking, enrichment, and representation. The program aims to provide the mechanism through which people connect, build career pathways and accelerate technological growth. Overall, the program strives to “elevate” the participant’s conference experience by offering these opportunities for building robust skill sets which the science and engineering of superconductivity demands.

The program is at an early stage in its development. It is expected to evolve throughout time and to secure and fulfill the most relevant needs of members of the community. ELEVATE’s strength lies in the active participation of members of the community to create and shape the program. We welcome your input and invite you to join ELEVATE committee members on this mission.


Applied Superconductivity Conference 2022 ELEVATE's pre-conference and conference activities.

Student Program

ELEVATE Program organizers have curated an array of activities to support our student attendees in growing as members of the conference community and on their professional path.

Short Courses & Workshops

ASEF continues to offer the most in depth short courses and workshops available anywhere. Sessions will be offered in person during the conference week and virtually throughout the year.

ELEVATE Plenary Sessions

To promote emerging topics within our field and encourage open dialogue amongst our entire community.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

The ASEF is committed to the significance and importance of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. This year we have multiple DEI events to address the relevant topics brought forward from the superconducting community.


ASEF and ASC 2022 are planning ELEVATE Outreach events to occur prior to and during the ASC 2022 conference.

ASC 2022 Platinum, Gold and Silver Sponsors


The ASC 2022 Conference Committee invites your company to exhibit at the 2022 Applied Superconductivity Conference, considered the Premier International Conference on Superconductivity. Food and beverage will be available in prominent locations throughout the Exhibit area.


In late October, daily high temperatures are around 87°F. Daily low temperatures are around 72°F. October can be a rainy season in Honolulu so pack appropriate attire for the weather.


The ASC 2022 program committee is planning a number of special sessions which will be of interest for different attendees, including engineers/scientists, system-level developers, and industry-level representatives. Sessions will include special-invited and contributed presentations.


The Hawaii Convention Center has a business center for your basic copy & printing services, shipping, receiving, and faxes. For large-format printing (posters), you can go to Professional Image – Kapiolani located at 1600 Kapiolani Blvd., #120 or call them at +1-808-972-4477.


There are may exciting attractions in and around Honolulu. The Pearl Harbor Memorial, the Bishop Museum and Iolani Palace are just a few of the great attractions on the island. Go to for information on many attractions and activities on the island.


The Ala Moana Center is a large open-air shopping mall near the Convention Center. There are over 200 shops and restaurants in the center to check out. More information can be found at

Exhibit Welcome

Thank you for your interest in this year’s ASC conference and exhibit. ASC is the unrivaled global event for those involved in superconductivity. After a virtual ASC20 conference, we all look forward to meaningful face-to-face exhibitor  interactions in 2022. Our technical exhibit will provide your organization with an outstanding opportunity to display your products and services to the largest gathering of individuals within the superconductivity community from across the globe. We expect an attendance of more than 1700 of the top scientists and engineers involved in research and development on applied superconductivity along with the top decision makers, government agencies and entrepreneurs. Together, we will navigate challenges, create partnerships, and collaborate to create a better tomorrow. We are expecting a large number of industry specific companies consisting of product manufacturers and service providers concerned with the field of superconductivity as well as other related areas. The Exhibition will be held in the spectacular Honolulu Convention Center filled with lush plants and trees, courtyards, waterfalls, in the beautiful over 115,000 sq-ft  Kamehameha exhibition space.
